About This Book

This up to date and forcefully written account of Burma today is written by a senior journalist who in the last 15 years has often been in the country. Interviews and a wide range of contacts highlight some of the hideous cruelty and oppression in the recent history of Burma's people and also some tentative signs of possible changes in recent official policy. The government 's largely inhumane handling of the 2008 Cyclone Nargis disaster and the views of Aung San Suu Kyi are discussed. The future is viewed with a measure of hope for change from Thein Sein's promise of some reform. With glossary, bibliography, list of concerned organisations, and index.
